HORSERACING: LUNGO CALL TO DOBBIN.
Supple has been associated with Len Lungo for the past few seasons and I gather his close friend Tony Dobbin is now set to team up with the Dumfries-shire trainer on a regular basis.
'Dobbs', who will continue his partnership with Greystoke based Nicky Richards, has long been admired by Lungo.
He won on juvenile hurdler Mirjan at Cheltenham last week and look out for him riding the bulk of the horses carrying the colours made famous by the Edinburgh Woollen Mill.
Irishman Supple, 33, rode around 400 winners in his career while West Country born Foster amassed slightly less than half that total.
Meanwhile, hopes are high that Britain's busiest racing afternoon will beat the weather. Saturated Towcester is the only casualty to date, having been abandoned due to waterlogging on Saturday.
Fingers are crossed round the country that each of the 14 remaining meetings will defy the recent wet spell.
Only serious doubt is the Flat fixture at Nottingham, where there's a 7.30am inspection.
Brian Clifford warned that conditions will be "testing" at Kempton.
ARISTOTLE was relegated to third after finishing first past the post in the Prix Greffulhe at Longchamp yesterday.
The Aidan O'Brien-trained colt came home two lengths clear of Rhenium but was demoted by the Stewards for interfering with Boutron early in the straight.
